Assassins Creed Arrives May 2015

That is too close to Star Wars

By Robert T. Trate     May 20, 2013
Source: Slashfilm.com

SlashFilm is reporting that Michael Fassbender’s Assassin's Creed will arrive May 22nd, 2015. Fassbender (Prometheus, Shame) will play “Desmond Miles, the descendant of a long line of assassins who can relive the memories of his ancestors”. The film will be released by 20th Century Fox. 


What is interesting is the release date. May 22nd, 2015 falls in the third week of May. This week is usually the week that Star Wars films get released. With Episode VII having a 2015 release date and all Star Wars films (six in total) historically falling in the same week, do you think 20th Century Fox will move Assassin’s Creed


What could become another factor is Disney already having a big Summer movie at the beginning of May, Avengers 2. Will Disney move Star Wars to June? Will they buck tradition and give Star Wars a new month unto which they will release them? With casting not even started yet, will J.J. Abrams make the 2015 release date?

With all due respect to Assassins Creed I hadn't realized Avengers & Star Wars were most likely coming out in the same month...you just blew my mind.

I hadn't realized it either.  Disney will be wealthier than Scrooge McDuck!

Does anyone else think that Fox will still have Star Wars come 2015?

I STILL think Disney have some sort of deal on the table with Fox and will use the Star Wars license to get X-Men and FF back, if not only in part with fox distributing the the rebooted X-Men and FF in the same way that Universal and Paramount distribute Hulk and Iron Man respectively...

Fox also getting the distribution rights for any Star Wars films into the bargain...

 So he is playing Altair too right?

NO way SW comes out within a month  of Avengers.

Avengers is already dated SW isn't.

Marvel owns the first weekend of May

 I have never played the game, but seen it played...looked interesting...and Michael Fassbender is pretty awesome.  I'm usually the first to poo poo any video game movie, but I'm honestly intrigued with this one.  Might just have to give it a shot.

 I would think so Hanso. If done right this could be good. I guess that's true for all movies.

Ok, i got worried for a sec.  I thought he play Desmond but someone else would be Altair.
